A powerhouse for apples and cherries

Recent Eurostat data shows that Poland is in the top three in five out of eight categories of fresh produce. The country accounts for a quarter of the EU’s apple production. Second are the Italians, who produce a bit over 19 per cent, and in third place are the French with 15 per cent of production.  
    

Poland also leads against Italy and Spain when it comes to cherries. Meanwhile, it is in second place with strawberries, surpassed only by Spain and Germany.
    

Due to the Russian embargo, Polish exports of vegetables are down by 10 per cent and exports of fruit are down by 19 per cent from a year earlier.
